    Another zombie shooter, but with (hopefully) a bit more depth?

    Paradox Interactive has released more details on its upcoming action/RPG title, Fort Zombie. In Fort Zombie, players will find themselves in Piety, Indiana, a small town facing a horrifying infestation of zombies with a relentless thirst for blood. Survival is only possible through finding refuge in a single, abandoned building.

    Players must focus their efforts on building up this structure, finding and training survivors, and venturing out into town to look for supplies. Of course, all of this must be achieved while combating the gruesome undead, who will stop at nothing to make you part of their company.

    * Take control of a single building in town as you prepare for total zombie infestation
    * Gather supplies and find survivors by day, defend your building by night
    * Players can engage in specific single missions within the campaign and spend hours building up the ultimate fortress
    * Unique character building and reward system – each day brings new missions, each with different potential rewards. How you utilize and level up your survivors will greatly affect your chances of avoiding an ultimate zombie demise

    Talk is it will cost $10/Eur

    Can't see much depth to it if it's rumoured to only cost $10?!

    the £30-£40 is not a just price for most new games, it's just the highest price they can get away with. Perhaps this company doesn't want to charge more.

    It sounds like they've taken that zombie flash game ("the last stand" IIRC) and turned it into a 3d game.

    L4D is very good for your hack and slash, shoot'em up type game. But something more RPG/tactical and more considered could work very well too.

    + L4D isn't really zombie fighting... it's infected fighting :)

    looks good, I reckon it could be a cult hit. I wonder what way they will distribute it?

    They imply it's written to allow it to be modified easily too!?

    Shame it's single player and not co-op/multiplayer :(

    Took a gamble on this last night, it's only £8. A few negatives: The installer is a bit broken, works fine though if you follow the fix on the official forums. Also the performance is not that great for the graphic quality, but its good enough. The camera/aiming is also a little flaky. Inventory system is a bit clunky, as is the way weapons reload.

    But apart from the niggles (which will hopefully get fixed, apparently the Devs are good at patching and listening to the community) I am enjoying the game a lot :D There's a lot of atmosphere and tension, especially when you are out on a mission and it is getting close to sun down. The gathering nature and upgrading of equipment and character development make it a bit more in depth than the usual zombie game, more planning than shooting.

    Looking forward to playing this :D
    Won a copy on Twitter so just waiting to receive the relevant code.

    Seems like a great concept to me.
